Sweet Circus are a festival favourite.

Sweet Circus are experts at providing circus play activities and beginner workshops that are really popular with the kids and adults alike. Packages can include a circus play arena, taster workshops, walkabout, ambient performance, full performance and our pop up shop.  Bringing Sweet Circus to your event provides excellent added value to your festival, when your attendees engage with our services it is something they talk about afterwards, becomes part of their festival memories and encourages them to rebook for next year.


Circus Play Arena:

This is really popular with family festivals.  A team of friendly instructors and a van full of circus fun will provide drop in sessions throughout the day.  Many participants return again and again throughout the festival and leave having developed an new healthy hobby and skill.  Children make new friends in our arena and adults either get stuck right in or have a bit of a break watching their children having fun and gaining confidence.


Workshops and Taster Sessions:

In addition to or instead of ‘freeplay’ sessions, Sweet Circus can provide more structured circus taster sessions for different age groups.  Learn to juggle, beginning poi and Aerial Hoop are very popular, let us know what you think your festival goers would like and we’ll work with you to design the right package.



Once attendees have had a go at some circus skills they often want to purchase an item so that they can continue this activity after the festival. We will bring a small selection of good quality circus toys which are available to purchase at the event.


Ambient Performance and Walkabout Mischief:

Both Ambient Aerial performance and walkabout characters are available to enhance the mood and feel at your festival.  Our mischievous walkabouts love to blow their kazoos, ride around on a minibike, tower above on stilts or dash about playing peg tag with your festival goers.  We can bring a portable aerial rig or you can provide your own tested rigging.  A number of performers are available with a choice of aerial hoop or trapeze.  A typical ambient session would be 3 or 4, 15 minuet sets per performer.  This can be repeated each day or a couple of times a day.


Aerial Performance:

Bespoke routines and performances are available and can be choreographed to your chosen music or themes.  A typical routine is 3 – 5 minutes per performer and can be repeated each day or a number of times in a day.  Contact us well in advance if you are hoping to include performances in your festival so we can discuss your requirements and put together a pop up show just for you.




The cost of hiring us for your festival is entirely dependent on the number of instructors and or performers required.  As a guide our core team can provide a package to include freeplay, workshops and retail for approximately £250 a day.  Packages to include ambient performance, walkabout characters or full performances or other services are available at an additional fee.
